vol 1 / nr 26 / Briarcliff Manor, New York, USA

Artist and professional photographer Don Penny sent me a long email with lots of warm words about the project. He wrote about how he found the print: "Walking the alleys of Florence I looked down to see this crisp, white envelope, in stark contrast o its dusty surroundings, leaning up against a centuries old foundation. Instinctively I reached down to see what it was and upon opening it was engaged and excited to find a beautiful print, intimate and soothing in subject, size and color."

"To create a thing of beauty and then, to offer it, without condition or expectation to any random stranger willing to stop and interact with the non discript envelope is an act of inspired generosity."

"I am a firm believer that it is not what we can get, what we can take in life, but rather what we leave behind."
